What's inspiring me lately?

Hi my friends!

This is what's inspiring me this week:

1- A clean scrap room
2- Ali Edwards
3- Dwell magazine
4- Experimenta magazine (Spain)
5- Work in Progress October kit (I'm catching up Trish!)
6- Collage Press patterned papers
7- My scrappy friends (so full of talent)

Last night, I got to scrap with my sweet, sweet friends and we had a blast! THANK YOU Barb, Lou, Anilu and Esther for your wonderful friendship. It really means so much to me! :-) I can't wait to see you again soon...

Of course, with my Friday crop night came some enabling. Anilu and Barb showed me the awesome Nestibilities cutting system and it rocks. I learned how to cut these beautiful scalloped circles (and other shapes, too).

I have been wanting the new Collage Press Grayson Hall papers for a while now and last night I got to see them at Barb's house. I have a real weakness for Collage Press patterned papers. :-) I have also loved the Seeds collection since it came out last year, but I got to see even more papers from the collection that I had never seen before so I caved! Hurry, there are still some Grayson Hall kits left (Seeds is out of stock already) at I placed my order like at 3 am!

Lou, did you get yours? If not, Stop and Scrap has them both so click here!

Other than that, I've been pretty good at not spending money this month. My focus has been on using up what I already own from my stash, getting rid of what I won't be using (my local scrapbook store has garage sales from time to time so I have my pile ready to go!), staying on track with my diet and exercise plan (6 pounds lost! Whoohoo! Lots more to go!), and enjoying life, family and friends.

What's inspiring you this week?
Peace and happy scrappin!
